We went out around 3:30 pm on a sunny afternoon and finished the trail around 7 pm. The Connecticut mountain Laurels were in full bloom and were exceptional. Irregular path mostly rocks, exceptional views in sages ravine of the water cascade with a nice spot to bath in past the Sages Ravine campsite. The elevation gain and climb up to Bear mountain on the way back was fun climbing over large sections of rocky granite. Great view of the valley from the base of the old tower on Bear mountain, well worth the workout to get there. Would recommend this trail to anyone who loves hiking if they are fit.
